Emergency Architects Australia Offers Pro-bono Assistance of Building Professionals for Queensland

Emergency Architects Australia (EAA) is a not-for-profit organization of construction professionals that assesses damage to buildings so that rebuilding is more sustainable and risk adverse for communities in both our Asia Pacific region and Australia.

EAA is a team supported of many individual architects, architectural practices and other building professionals. It partners with all levels of government, with other aid organisations and directly with communities (rather than individuals). EAA provides, in the reconstruction phase that follows disasters – damage assessment, planning, design, inspection and other technical expertise that:

  • Indicate ways of moving forward
  • Bring highly qualified professionals to assist and facilitate solutions at minimal cost
  • Assists with rebuilding in ways that reduce future risks.
  • And can provide opportunities for raising funds.
  • Provide assistance in small regional communities that don’t have professional resources available.

As well as assisting with post tsunami reconstruction in Sigli Indonesia and in the Western Province of the Solomon Islands, EAA has worked for the Victorian Bush Fire Recovery and Reconstruction Authority master-planning and designing the temporary village at Kinglake and a community hall for Narbethong following the Black Saturday bushfires.
See: www.emergencyarchitects.org.au

Please contact EAA if we are able to be of any assistance to your organization or community.
